Gabon lies on the shore of Central Africa, bordering Congo, Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea. The nation has a long drift, lapped by tropical Atlantic waters. A lot of Gabon is an untouched wild, with a little yet creating vacationer industry. Individuals go to Gabon to see its natural life ashore, yet few make it there for a Gabon scuba diving excursion. Scuba diving in Gabon has potential, however we don’t know of any administrators offering it yet. This is somewhat in light of Gabon’s general absence of advancement. There are some little shoreline resorts, yet the nation does not have the sort of advancement that would bolster significant dive operations. Also, while Gabon has ensured ranges where marine life thrives, it doesn't have any coral reefs â€" normally a huge draw for divers. Any individual who does figure out how to dive in Gabon is liable to discover barracuda, snapper and numerous other brilliant fish. Be that as it may until the dive offer enhances in the nation, the best places to dive close Gabon are in Angola (toward the south) and Ghana (toward the north). Neither one of the country has a profoundly created dive industry, yet both are beginning to see dive shops opening up in waterfront zones.
